Semester Fee and Re-Registration

Students will only be re-registered after a complete transfer of the semester fee that must also provide the matriculation number as a reference (no further actions are required).

You will receive your Student-ID-Card by mail, after the fee has been credited. The updated enrollment certificate will be uploaded to the TUCaN-account and can be viewed at Service > My Documents.

Re-registration is mandatory to stay enrolled at TU Darmstadt and to partake in exams.

Please note:

  • The semester and administration fee is re-determined and adjusted each semester.
  • Please inform the Student Service ahead of the re-registration period about all changes to your personal data (in particular changes to your address).
